"Here Come The Snakes" is my favourite album of GOR (I didn't catch them all), and there's a good "Best Of".

Arbuthnot, all this talk of the '70s has reminded me of Kevin Coyne and his wonderful "Marjory Razorblade" album. Do you know his music? Legend has it that he was asked to front The Doors after Jim Morrison's death - he certainly had the chops poetry-wise and was a good singer, although he wasn't blessed with Morrison's good looks. Anyway, he declined the offer, so we'll never know .... Here's three great songs from "Marjory Razorblade" that I think you will like (House On The Hill, Jackie and Edna, Talking To No-One):

i never even heard of Kevin Coyne, but if those tracks you linked are any indication of his style of singing/performance, wow, i need to scout around for a copy of that LP; the first two links in particular are some pretty powerful songs; his vocals are definitely unique but i like his style ... and it's not as though i actually needed more music to seek out, or accumulate, but thanks!
